Communicating with the Institute

To ensure timely and efficient receipt, assessment, awarding and management of grants we have established a register of Administering Institution Contacts (AICs). All communication regarding grant (applications, awarding, reporting, agreements, variations etc.) will be directed through the AICs and applications will need an AIC number.

Application review

Grant applications are reviewed by the relevant Grant Review Committee, in accordance with our Peer Review Policy. These committees act independently and are made up of interstate experts. The committees may also call on additional interstate and international experts to provide further in-depth peer review. These committees are responsible for making recommendations in relation to the allocation of competitive grant funds to the Institute.

Their decision is considered final.
